Book Lovers: Amazon Unveils New Kindle


If you’re a Kindle fan (like me) then I’m sure you were interested in the big news from Amazon yesterday.

In case you missed it, the online giant revealed its upgraded e-reader, the “Oasis”, which goes on sale April 27.

Will Oremus, writing for Slate, has details on the new device via the link below.

Let me know if you plan to grab the new Kindle.

“On Wednesday morning, the retail giant announced its newest Kindle, and it’s even pricier than the Voyage. It’s called the Kindle Oasis, and it will set you back some $290.” – Will Oremus

Tips On Staying Productive For Night Owls And Morning People


I don’t know about you, but I want to start the year on a productive note and start ticking things off my “to do” list.

I’ve been on the lookout for productivity tips, and it just so happens I found a great article yesterday.

Mihir Patkar (writing for Make Use Of) has compiled a helpful list of tips and hacks to make you (and me) more productive in 2015.

“The best productivity systems aren’t about changing who you inherently are, it’s about doing things in a way that is sustainable for you. You won’t always get to set your own work timings, but you can still ease the pain in tackling your tasks.” – Mihir Patkar

Check out Mihir’s article at the link below and let me know what you think.
